Creative Arts Award
Caitlin Killeen is 13 years old and from Hinckley, Leicestershire. This very creative young artist has already started to venture into creating a line of merchandise and own blog called G?RL -
Caitlin said ' The blog is called G?RL because I believe that girls have a tough time trying to conform, girls get judged for lots of reasons, how they look, what clothes they wear, what hobbies they have. I'm passionate about equality, and want G?RL to make a difference. , I'm going to be selling merchandise from my G?RL range and donate the profits to different equality charities around the world. I will then concentrate on those charities that stand up for girls rights, particularly rights to an education around the world.
' Over time I want G?RL to grow into a company in its own right and recruit all supporters who will be 'I'm with G?RL' to promote the brand. The JHMT Inspire grant will go a long way to helping me achieve my goals.'
Simon Taylor, Inspire Project lead, said: We are always pleased to support young people who show entrepreneurial talent but very much based on the their passion to improve things for themselves and those around them . We wish Caitlin every success with this project
